Olympique Lyon and Toulouse are two teams who are eager for a turn around after such a poor start to the campaign. They are both at the bottom end of the table, with Lyon in 18th and Toulouse in 15th position.
A win for either side would make a whole lot of sense as neither side wants to remain at the bottom end of the table. Lyon are currently on a 3-match losing streak after their 3:0 defeat against Marseille, while Toulouse have not won any of their last 7 league games.Grab Your Signup Bonus
Olympique Lyon’s struggles have continued and a chance of a turnaround is looking more impossible by the day. They have now lost 9 out of 14 league games they played since the start of the season, playing a draw 4 times and winning only 1.
By all means, this has been the worst start to the season for Lyon in decades.
Lyon lost their last game against Olympique Marseille last weekend. They failed to score a goal in the game and conceded 3 goals by the end of 90 minutes. Their stats were also quite mediocre as they managed 51% possession, and took 1 shot on target and 3 corner kicks. The defeat against Marseille was their 3rd defeat in a row since their 1:0 win over Rennes last month.
Olympique Lyon have offered very little hope ahead of the fixture against Toulouse this weekend. However they remain unbeaten against Toulouse in their last 14 meetings, a record that goes back to Toulouse 2-1 win over Lyon back in 2014. But with the current state of both teams, a defeat for Lyon is more likely than the opposite.
Toulouse are not a bright team at the moment, but coming up against Lyon might be a big opportunity for them to grab 3 points. Toulouse are winless in 7 league games in a row. During that period, they recorded 3 defeats and 4 draws.
Toulouse played against Lorient last weekend and both clubs played a 1:1 draw at full time. Toulouse got the opening goal through Thijs Dallinga in the 72nd minute, but they failed to hang on as Lorient grabbed an equalizer late in the game.
At the moment, Toulouse are in 15th place on the Ligue 1 table, with 13 points from 14 league games. They have won just 2 games, then they drew 7 and lost 5 matches.
Toulouse's record against Lyon has been one-sided in the last couple of years, with Lyon taking a huge chunk of wins over Toulouse. But at the moment, Lyon are having a poor season and Toulouse might be eager to capitalize and grab all 3 points.
Head to Head
According to the head-to-head record, Lyon has beaten Toulouse 13 times in their 20 meetings. While Toulouse won 3 times and they both played a draw 4 times.
